Restorations Q & A
What are restorations?
A restoration is a dental service that restores your smile’s function, structure, strength, or integrity when it’s suffered from damage or decay. Some of the reasons Dr. Boado might recommend a restoration include:
- Replacing missing teeth
- Alleviating dental pain
- Protecting you from tooth loss
- Filling in unattractive gaps between widely spaced teeth
- Enhancing your smile
- Improving teeth that are damaged or decayed
- Enhancing your ability to properly eat and speak
- Improving your bite
Despite the fact that fluorides and increased patient awareness have reduced the incidence of tooth decay over the years, damage and decay still happen, and when they do, restorations provide an exceptional solution to keeping your smile healthy and beautiful.
What types of restorations do you offer?
Hollister Smiles Dental: Diana Boado, DDS, offers a wide range of high-quality restorative procedures, including:
- Composite filling
- Dental crown
- Dental bridge
- Root canal therapy
The team works with a wide range of materials, including state-of-the-art Empress® restorations. Empress restorations use a completely metal-free, heat-pressed, glass ceramic that provides better support, strength, and durability than traditional ceramic materials.
Part of that is due to the use of leucite crystals, which exhibit a high shrinkage at high temperatures. This makes Empress restorations less prone to breaking and cracking, which means fewer dental visits and a reduced cost over the years, not to mention a beautiful smile.
What is involved with getting a restoration?
Every restoration is slightly different and therefore entails its own unique procedure. Some of the steps that many restorations have in common include:
- Shaving enamel from your tooth or teeth
- Taking a mold or impression of your smile
- Testing your restoration to ensure that the bite and fit are comfortable and accurate
Every restoration process is different, though. Root canal therapy involves removing your dental pulp, while dentures can sometimes require you to extract some of the teeth in your mouth.
Whichever restorative procedure you decide to have with Hollister Smiles Dental: Diana Boado, DDS, you can rest assured that Dr. Boado and her team will provide you with the most minimally invasive techniques and the most effective results.
